Dear Family of Mary!

“Return to God and prayer that the Holy Spirit may work in you and through you.” (June 25, 2022)

Fr. Slavko Barbaric, OFM. spent his priesthood teaching and guiding pilgrims in Medjugorje on how to live Our Lady’s messages. He wrote many books. But one of my favorite is “Pray with the Heart! – Medjugorje Manual of Prayer”. Fr. Slavko was a very good shepherd. He showed the pilgrims and the people of the parish how to return to God and to prayer!!!

Here is a prayer to the Holy Spirit that Fr. Slavko wrote for the book “Pray with the Heart”:

Mary, thank you for having called me to pray every day to the Holy Spirit through whom you conceived Jesus Christ, through whom you in meditation understood the word of God and remained faithful to it to the end.

June 2, 1984 “Dear children! Tonight I wish to tell you during the days of this Novena to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on your families and on your parish. Pray, and you shall not regret it. God will give you gifts by which you will glorify Him till the end of your life on this earth. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

O Spirit, I pray to You now with Mary who called me to pray to You. Pour Yourself out on me with all Your gifts!

Pour out the gift of love into my life that from now on I may love God in You above all, and my neighbor as myself.

Pour out on me the gift of wisdom that I may – in everything I do and think, feel and decide – always think, decide and act in Your light.

O Spirit of Counsel, descend on me that I may, with my knowledge and the word of love, help those who ask me for counsel! Let my every word be a light to others!

Spirit of Jesus, grant me the gift of Your strength that I may stand every trial and do the Father’s will, especially in times of hardship! Spirit of fortitude, strengthen me in the hours of frailty!

O Spirit of Life, develop divine life within me which was given to me through You already in the bosom of my mother and at my baptism!

Divine Fire, inflame the fire of divine love in my heart so that the darkness and ice of sin may disappear from it!

Spirit of Healing, heal within me all that is wounded and develop the undeveloped!

Descend on me with all your strength that I may be thankful for small things as well. Enlighten me, Holy Spirit, that I may know how to appreciate crosses and hardships, too.

Mary, you are the bearer of the Holy Spirit. So thank you for calling me to pray to the Spirit of Truth.

June 9, 1984 “Dear children! Tomorrow night pray for the Spirit of Truth! Especially, you from the parish because you need the Spirit of Truth to be able to convey the messages just the way they are, neither adding anything to them, nor taking anything whatsoever away from them, but just the way I said them. Pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire you with the spirit of prayer, so you will pray more. I, your Mother, tell you that you are praying little. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

O Spirit of Truth, enlighten me with Your Truth that I may first live the truth of love, peace and righteousness. Help me that I may be able with my words and deeds, to proclaim every day the word of the Father in its full light to everybody!

Holy Spirit, guide our Pope, bishops, priests and all others who proclaim the Word of God! Fall on the parish community of Medjugorje, too, that it may be able to live Our Lady’s messages and to convey them to all! Fall on the priests who preach in Medjugorje! Fall on the confessors and those who confess.

Spirit of Prayer, teach us how to pray. Cleanse our hearts that we may pray worthily and always find time for prayer! Holy Spirit, pray within me and invoke: Abba Father! Grant me the favor of praying with the heart!

Mary, I also want to open my heart to the Holy Spirit, as you opened yours when you called me:

May 23, 1985 “Dear children! These days I call you especially to open your hearts to the Holy Spirit. Especially during these days the Holy Spirit is working through you. Open your hearts and surrender your life to Jesus so that He works through your hearts and strengthens you in faith. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Holy Spirit, take away all burdens from me that my heart may be like a developing and growing flower that brings abundant fruit! Mary, may the Holy Spirit start and continue within me the deed which started in you, that the divine word may grow within me through it!

O Holy Spirit, through Mary I choose You today the Master of my whole being. With trust and hope in Your endless love, which manifested itself so marvelously in Mary, I decide for Your gifts. I renounce every evil spirit and his action, and accept You, the Spirit of light, Love, Peace and Order. I devote to You all my abilities and want to act in Your light. I surrender to You all rights over my life. Watch over me and lead me to the Father! I pray to You with Mary through Jesus Christ. Amen. (Fr. Slavko Barbaric, O.F.M – Pray with the Heart – Medjugorje Manual of Prayer, copywright, Parish of Medjugorje 1988)

Our Lady Speaks

Vicka's Note MaryTV

Vicka, one of the visionaries in Medjugorje, wrote the note (above) after Our Lady spoke with her during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about Mary TV’s  plan to build a television facility in Medjugorje.

Vicka wrote to Denis: “Our Lady says that the plan is good – but you need to wait a little.  Now you can get prepared little by little, until Our Lady tells when the right moment is.  You don’t need to hurry, make haste, but to be patient.”

When Our Lady said this to Vicka, the technical genius in Medjugorje that she had her eyes upon, who would begin Mary TV’s live streaming from Medjugorje, was seven years old.

Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)

Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.

Our Lady gave this prayer 25 years before She started appearing in Medjugorje. This prayer is being answered through Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje and through Her messages. Mother Immaculata writes: “This is Mary’s hour and She is about to crush Satan’s head. Her very being is like incandescent heat in the center of the Trinity and the manifestation of Her power is growing daily. The Immaculate Conception prayer (which is what Our Lady called the prayer she gave me for union with Her) has been used by exorcists who have told me that the devil reacts violently to it and is subdued by it. We are praying daily for the success of Mary TV!“

Our Lady Gives A Sign…


MARY TV was LIVE STREAMING Ivan’s May 24, 2013 apparition on Mt. Podbrdo (Apparition Hill) in Medjugorje. My wife, Cathy, was praying in front of her computer in the US, connected through the Internet, welcoming Our Lady along with everyone gathered on the mountain. She couldn’t see anything on her computer screen because it was late at night and Ivan had said, “No lights.” She found herself asking Our Lady for a sign – a little light – as a sign that MARY TV was on the right track and really serving her. Just after the apparition, when she went to give an account on Mary TV’s Facebook page, the page opened with this picture that she had never seen before, captioned: “MARY APPEARS OVER BUILDING IN MEDJUGORJE, PHOTO TAKEN BY PILGRIM.” Our Lady is standing directly over MARY TV’s studios, her feet right where we have two POV cameras STREAMING 24/7 LIVE TO THE WORLD Apparition Hill & Cross Mountain!


Our Lady spoke to Vicka during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about the importance of Mary TV’s mission. At that time she told Vicka that she herself (Our Lady) would begin Mary TV! She did! But she didn’t do it alone. The generosity of her children made Mary TV a reality for her. Your generosity is needed now for it to continue!
